The term "Backup" means the methods and processes involved to copy computer data (system data as well as application data) to media other than the ones where the data originally live (disk, tape, optical, cloud). "Restore" in turn means the methods and processes involved in data recovery, i. e., bringing back copied computer data to their original location. Backup/Restore primarily serves as a means of protection against data loss, be it due to disaster, corruption or sabotage. It can also be used for recovering data from an earlier point in time and even for cloning machines or applications. There is a wide variety of backup/restore software available, from expensive commercial products to free or open source tools.

Hello EE,

I am working on a network drive migration task and all has been going well with this command which will copy source to the destination and keep all the permissions\ACLs intact and gives me a nice log file to review the results. This command does not mess up anything on the source but will mirror it to the destination which is what I want for time being:

robocopy "\source-server\share\folder" "\destination-server\share\folder" /zb /MT:32 /mir /copyall /dcopy:T /V /tee /LOG+:C:\temp\robocopylog.txt /r:0 /w:0

All is well :-) Until I realize that I have tiny window for the final copy before full cutover to the new storage.

Problem: command above is taking close to 31 hours to run for 9TB of data and my cutover time frame is only about 12 hours. I re-run the command every 48 hours to check for changes to the data on source to update the destination and it appears there are millions of small files which are slowing down the copy.

All the data is there just want to keep the destination up to date with new robocopy command and slim down the time without jeopardizing the data or permissions\ACLs.

I have narrowed down a couple folders I could exclude from these subsequent copies to shave down the 31 hours to roughly 9 hours by reviewing the data.

I have been trying out the /XD switch and cannot get it to work.

Here is a example of the /XD added to the command;

robocopy "\source-server\share\folder" "\destination-server\share\folder" /XD …

Hello,  It appears only a couple backup vendors support Nutanix.  We are migrating all our file shares over and I'm panicking because I don't know how we can backup the data.  Anyone else using Nutanix file shares with recommendations?

Got a dell laptop from 2008. it doesn't boot.  Took out the hard drive.  put it in external dock to a win 10 machine.  Made 'unusual' scratching noises and an E and F drive came up. Couldn't browse them.

Crystal Drive info didn't see the root drive.

I put it in the freezer overnight.  

No scratching noice noise now - I can browse the recovery partition.  Windows shows an F partition but can't browse it / click on F and windows says F:\ is not accessible the parameter is incorrect.

Any thoughts short of a clean room type of service?

install it internally to a PC?
Booting in linux?

Crystal Disk info data is attached - takes a few minutes after clicking on the drive to get info

Windows disk manager says F drive is RAW.  E drive (recovery partition) is NTFS Healthy

I guess a partition recovery software.

Hi ,
          In order to evaluate the renewal of tsm licenses, i need to analize the total amount of data backuped and restored in 2015/2016/2017. The format could be like this:

Year  | Action (backup or restore) | amount of restores/backups | Total amount of data in GB

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I have 4 node Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) cluster with two adapter. One for serving client and other one is for the Cluster only. In switch it is configured as trunk mode. The primary is serving PROD Vlan 172.16.0.0/24 subnet and secondary virtual adapter has 11.11.11.0/24 cluster only but no vlan been set but VLAN been enabled without IP set on the core switch.  In SCVMM 2016 of the virtual machines for the S2D cluster are getting the error as follows. Sometimes we are able to manage sometimes all options are disabled.
======================================
Error (13921)
The highly available virtual machine (VM03) is not supported by VMM because one or more of its network adapters is not configured correctly.
Recommended Action
Ensure that all of the virtual network adapters are either disconnected or connected to highly available virtual switches.
=============================================

The virtual switch is created, is there any document to verify the Virtual Network setup to fix this issue. Perhaps we are missing something or the VLAN gateway should be configured for the secondary adapter on Hosts.

This is annoying and giving big headache. But on other aspect all VM's are communicating and live migration works perfectly.  

Any suggestion and help appreciated.

hi guys

I need to restore a file from a tape backup on Veeam. I can't for the life of me do it. I use Symantec so I am used to just being able to browse to the file location and restore.

How do you restore just one file from a tape backup?

Thanks for helping

I am running (first time) a cpanel (cloud Linux) server as a guest on esx6.5.

I want to increase the size of the hard drive, preferably the /home partition.

I know how to increase the hard drive allocated to the guest but what is the appropriate way to resize the visible hard drive on the guest and the  /home partition.

I know I could easily just add a secondary hard drive but would rather resize the /home if possible. Unfortunately my Linux knowledge is 'basic'

Thanks for any help you can provide.

We're currently storing data on Office 365 cloud and looking for redundancy, so far we tested Cloud Ally and it's hard to tell how well it's working. My personal feeling is it's too light, meaning it doesn't provide enough feedback of current status especially larger folders. Just says, "backup in progress" and nothing else. Depending on the folder size this can last for days.

I'm not concerned with running my own calculations to determine when the backup should finish. I'm looking for software that will do this for me or I would just FTP sync the data myself.

Question EE, what have you used for cloud to cloud backup and why?

Thank you

Mozy Pro Customer who had Microsoft Update completely obliterate my business main PC.  Mozy backs up my machines 4 times a day.  So backups should exist, but Mozy all of a sudden doesn't recognize my login email address.  Mozy Pro support won't allow a call to go through, unless a customer can log in and retrieve a call PIN.  How the h*** is a 10yr paying business customer of Mozy supposed to get service or restore files if Mozy won't take a call or offer anything other than 24hr per email it sends?  Extremely frustrated that I've provided Mozy support verified credit card payment, exact date of last payment, card details for payment and all requested verification, but Mozy hasn't emailed or called back with access to my account it won't let me in to?  

If this is how Mozy treats its customers when they actually NEED their data, why should anyone pay for this level of service?

and I need it to highlight duplicates and make it easy to purge duplicates.

I have 48GB clogging my disk with pictures and think I have many duplicates.  Know many images exist in both the Photo Gallery AND on my disk. And often there are multiple copies in both places.

What kind of automation is there I can use to save disk space and not spend time going through each picture. I really do not have the time, but I want:

1) grouping by person to be an option, and will train the system later, when I have time
2) remove from disk when safely stored in this program

Can I use Photo Gallery on the Mac for this?

Shall I consider the Google program, the name of which I forget?

Thanks.

I am not sure where to look to find what this disk contains and why it's almost full.

See attached error...

How can I find what files can be deleted for this startup disk not to max out?
